  • $40,715.00 - 74,370.00
position filled
**THE JOB**
Cobbossee is a 4-week, 2-session sleepaway summer camp in Maine. The dates for this position run from June 16th to August 15th, 2020. For more on what summer camping actually is, see the very bottom of this document!
Cobbossee is looking for a few talented and motivated Soccer Instructors / Counselors. We have a competitive Soccer program at Cobbossee teaching the basics to our youngest boys and improving the skills of our Soccer fanatics. If you have interest in improving your skills as a coach and want to work outside around soccer all summer, this position is for you. Check out our 2-minute Sports trailer at our website to see more.
Each Soccer Instructor/Counselor lives in a bunk with (and cares for!) a set of campers and works at the Soccer fields during the day. This position is also responsible for the management of inter-camp Soccer competitions (of which there are many) and generally contributing to a strong team. You want to belong to an amazing crew and do good work all summer? This is for you.
**THE BENEFITS**
Ever wanted to see New England? Well, in addition to your salary and bonus, Cobbossee will provide you with a travel stipend so you can get out to Maine without spending your own money.
Room and board is also provided, so you wont spend any of your own money all summer on living expenses (the food is famously good at Cobbossee. No, really, it is, Chef Louis has been here for 33 years delivering a ton of delicious meals including his legendary fried chicken).
Further, days off and nights out are spent with other adventurous folks like you who came to play. Our counselors make lifelong friends at Cobbossee. Many return year-to-year.
**OTHER POSSIBLE BENEFITS**
We can configure your employment this summer as job training, an internship, or just a really great summer job. Our director, Josh Holland, is a former academic and can make sure your experience is converted into internship credit if thats what you want. If you are in any child-centered major (teaching, education, coaching) or any sports-related field (sports management, kinesiology, movement, physical-education), this experience can be one of the best paid internships you can find.
**THE BOTTOM LINE**
Summer jobs are often seen as throwaway jobs. Not here. This job is going to challenge you. You are going to give of yourself, have an absolute blast, develop strong friendships with your peers, and really make a difference in young peoples lives. When you step outside of your comfort zone and join us on this adventure you will grow as a person, and youre going to develop real relationships doing it alongside fellow staff and with our wonderful campers.
You should come work at Cobbossee because we are one of the best. We develop counselors like we develop campers. You will change for the better. It will truly be the summer of your life.
**WHAT TO DO NEXT**
Our Staffing Director, Matt Jonesy Jones will be in touch very quickly. You can also call us at 800-###-#### if you have more questions.
For anyone not familiar with the huge world of sleepaway camps in New England, it works as follows:
All over the northeast each summer, families send their boys and girls up to New England to spend anywhere from a couple weeks to the entire summer at a sleepaway camp. Sometimes people who are not from the east coast see this as a strange choice, maybe even a mean choice! Dont they like their kids? the question goes. Of course they do. They love their children and its hard for them to be away from them for the time they are at camp. But parents sacrifice time with their kids in the summer because summer camp is really good for young children. Camp (especially longer-term camps of four-to-eight weeks) teaches children independence, self-reliance, and confidence through the teaching of new skills, improving at sports, and living away from home. It isnt always easy. But it is worth it! Crucial to this process are you, the counselor. You become like a family member to the campers in your cabin. In fact, you will find yourself developing really fast yourself, just so you can be the best counselor and instructor possible for your kids! It is rewarding, challenging, and transformative work to care for campers.
